Deadly Premonition Board Game Raises $65,000 Right Away

That didn't take long.


The Deadly Premonition board game didn't need very long to become a success. The project surpassed its $50,000 target on Kickstarter in just a day.

As of this writing, the Deadly Premonition board game has brought in $65,000 from more than 1,000 backers. The campaign ends on June 9, so funding is only going to climb higher. As shown on the Kickstarter page, there are a number of stretch goals.

For passing $55,000, two new bonus action cards were added, while the $60,000 stretch goal added two more. Passing $65,000 means the game will now include one new weather condition. You can see a full rundown of all the stretch goals on Kickstarter.

Pledges of $30 or more included the game itself and a Steam key for Deadly Premonition's Director's Cut. Alternatively, pledges of just $3 include a free copy of the Director's Cut on Steam.

The 2-4 player Deadly Premonition board game is inspired the video game and starts with players being dealt an "alignment" card that designates them as a Killer or Agent. Players must then either prove their innocence or incriminate the suspects. You can see a full rundown of the setup here.

The board game is being handled by Deadly Premonition's publisher, Rising Star Games, and is due out later this year. It's being made with the support of creator Hidetaka Suehiro, who is perhaps better known as Swery. However, Swery has spoken up to say that he is not very much involved with the board game.
